I signed up for the Ocean Player's Club before my last cruise (feb 10-17) and when I got to my room - I had a plate of strawberries and a coupon for $15 off at the Photo Gallary - compliments of the Casino. I was impressed, I really didn't think I'd get anything! Enjoyed the strawberries and the discount for the Photo gallery came in handy after selecting all the photos I wanted. And, don't forget to put your sign and sail card in the machines while playing as you get $10 for every 1000 pts you build up and you can deposit money to the card and take money from your card that way you never really have to carry money with you to the casino unless you really want to.
Does anybody know what kind of things the Ocean Players club gives to returning guests?
I cruise alot (as you can probably tell from my signature) and also play the slots....alot! Before each cruise I contact the Ocean Players club and tell them when I'm sailing again, what ship and cabin number. Here's some of the stuff I've gotten from the OPC:
Bon voyage decorations in the cabin
$15 Photo coupons (you can also use these for frames and photo albums)
Fruit and cheese basket
Fruit & cheese basket with wine (we don't drink wine so we give it to our cabin stewards)
Champagne at dinner
Chocolate covered straberries
2 large bottles of water
Tote bags full of hats, T-shirts, playing cards, etc
Free drinks in the casino from the casino host
Anywhere from $50 -$125 casino credit on top of the gifts (it will depend on how much you played on your last cruise)
Always be sure to have your sign & sail card in the slot machine when playing so it can keep track of your points!
Ocean Players Club is now Carnival Players Club...
....and the woman I spoke to at Ocean Players Club said they're no longer putting gifts in the cabin. All you'll receive now is the letter from OPC entitling you to a drink in the casino and 500 points on your card.
Last cruise I got the letter for 500 points and a free drink. We are leaving tomorrow to catch the Elation in San Diego and unbelieveably my wife and I each got a card in the mail today telling how to go online and get a coupon for $50 each in free play to use on our next cruise. Talk about good timing............
